Welcome to BODHI~WISE
BODHI~WISE is a licensed professional practice specializing in Thai Yoga Bodywork. Our vision is to help others connect to their closest asset: their innate Body-Wisdom. This vast resource leads us back to our natural state of balance, vitality, harmony, and ease. We intend to be a place where you can slow down and listen to your body, relax, and restore yourself in a safe, therapeutic environment.
Thai Yoga Bodywork (nicknamed 'Lazy man's yoga') is a flowing sequence of deep, rhythmic pressure to muscles and energy pathways in the body, blended with passive stretching and joint mobilization. Slowly and smoothly, the body is expanded and compressed to relieve tension and restrictions, creating a state of energized calm. This sophisticated, nurturing approach unleashes our innate life-force energy...restoring us to optimal balance, health, and well-being.
Finding ways to relieve accumulated stress is essential for health and well-being. The grip of stress and tension of daily life can obstruct the flow of vitality, like a river that has been dammed. When life-force energy loses it's momentum, it becomes sluggish and can lead to 'dis-ease'. Thai Yoga Bodywork offers a unique opportunity to renew our natural state of balance and ease.
Thai Yoga Bodywork provides the opportunity to release patterns of stress and tightness, surrender into ease and relaxation, and move beyond our present limitations. It benefits people of all ages, flexibility, and activity levels...from professional athletes to the average 'Jane or Joe'. As a gentle holistic practice, it is a valuable addition to any wellness regimen.

Our sessions take place on a soft, supportive mat, which allows for the most effective use of leverage and gravity in the stretches. Clients wear loose, comfortable clothing. We use our whole body as a tool to mindfully stretch your body...often farther than one could accomplish on their own. While Thai Yoga Bodywork is a more active workout for your body than table massage, it is meant to be therapeutic, not strenuous or painful. We aim to open the body up while respecting it's limits, and maintain open communication throughout the session to ensure your comfort and safety.
